Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which peripheral nervous system (PNS) neurons regenerate to identify potential targets for future therapeutic interventions in the setting of central nervous system (CNS) injury. The ongoing research efforts in my laboratory explore the injury-induced molecular pathways elicited in both cell body and axon that enable axon regeneration.Uniquely, my approach bridges the gap between cell biology and neuroscience to conduct a detailed study of the biology underlying axon regeneration.
